This part of the paper presents the relation between the working conditions, nozzle geometry, nozzle diameter, and jet behavior. Experimental work has been made by impinging the submerged jets on the copper specimen as a target for a period of time. The mass loss and erosion rate at various conditions were measured, calculated and analyzed. For the visualization, a high-speed camera was used and the obtained data were processed to measure parameters which are used to characterize the clouds. Correlations among the jet dynamic power, the cavity length, erosion rate, and the pertinent experimental parameters are apparent. In addition, formulas are proposed to conveniently compare the efficiency of jetting systems based on working conditions. Based on the mathematical analyses of the obtained results a new form for cavitation number calculation is proposed.
